Set up electronic claim/RA file sharing

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 requires that all health care providers and payers must use the X12 5010 version to exchange EDI business data.

Electronic data interchange (EDI) setup

We accept ANSI X12 EDI files through a direct connection with Clearinghouses that use Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP). 

Companion guides

Priority Health doesn't publish companion guides, as we strictly adhere to HIPAA standards. Refer to Products I X12.
